LEGAL EXPERTISE
Obtaining a residence permit in Georgia can be a complex process, and in some cases, applicants may face refusal from the authorities. However, the law provides an avenue for appealing such decisions through the court system.

The Georgian government has tightened the regulations surrounding residence permits in recent years.
UNDERSTANDING "SECURITY THREAT"
Under the Law of Georgia on the Legal Status of Aliens and Stateless Persons, various grounds are outlined for denying an alien entry into Georgia or revoking their residence permit. Article 18 specifically addresses situations where the presence of an alien is deemed detrimental to national security or public safety.

Article 18 has an exhaustive list of the cases taking into consideration as cases connecting with the state security (part 2 Article 18 Law on Legal Status of aliens):

A. The presence of the person in Georgia poses a threat to the relations with other states and/or international organisations;
2
ARTICLE 18
B. There is information indicating a high degree of probability of the person’s connection with:

  • the armed forces of the country/organisation with hostile attitude to the defence and security of Georgia;

  • the intelligence services of another state;

  • terrorist and/or extremist organisations;

  • the illegal circulation of drugs, arms, weapons of mass destruction or their components, human trafficking and/or other criminal organisations (including transnational criminal organisations).
If you feel that the administrative decision is not based on the relevant materials, you can appeal the decision in the Court.
